Eli is 3 today!

3 years ago today I birthed a blue conehead zombie troll with no neck and squinty eyes.
He had a face only a mother could love.
<<---And I did!
Still do!--->>>
Eli's gifties: awesome books and an easel.
He wanted a rocket.
We drew one on his easel.

Eli loves Blues Clues.
Oddly enough Blue came to our house in the night and left a Handy Dandy Notebook and a note. All the clues were fun things we did before his first day of preschool!
Go here to get the graphics to make your own Notebook and clues.
Here is his birthday note.
The 1st clue was on his preschool backpack. And the backpack was filled with new books (Eli is a book worm!)
The 2nd clue was on his new easel.
The 3rd clue was on the waffle mix to make chocolate chip waffles with Daddy (who stayed home from the office).

Eli can write his name. The preschool teacher told us how impressive that was.
And we were like "His name is ELI... not that hard. I mean the "l" and the "i" are basically just two lines."
She looked at us funny..

Then we headed out to preschool.
It was Parent orientation.
I have the first snack duty for the class... so you know I'm going to rock the snack and set the bar super high. I'm going to be the obnoxious mom who does birthday favors for the class.

"She looked at us kinda funny..." that had me cracking up...

Get used to it. Teachers don't like comedy. Well when it is directed at a child anyway....

Like when I yelled 'Don't come home stupid!" at drop off...they just shook their heads and I could see them mouthing the words "DAMN BLOGGER"

Yeah it's our boys birthday! Kai turned 4 and STILL can't write his name but he can do math! ha ha

I'm glad Kai isn't in your preschool class because your snacks would out do mine and then I would have to get a better recipe and then you would be creative again and then I would have to go to Costco and then and then and then! exhausting, see? That's why we aren't in your class ;)
